HotStart Installation

Once you finish this installation method, you should get exactly the same copy of this Demo site on your server. Let's start!

  1. Unzip file "hot_sportalXX_hotstart.zip" from the archive you downloaded after purchase. Unzip this archive to your computer.
  2. Using FTP software (such as FileZilla) upload all files and folders to your hosting space. Make sure that folder where you uploaded files is writable by server (chmod 755 or 777).
  3. In browser, open address http://www.your_site_address.com/joomla/index.php (change "your_site_address.com" with your site address, change "joomla" with folder name where you uploaded files, if you uploaded files to the root folder, you don't need this).
  4. Select your language and click Next.
  5. The installer will check your server to find out if it's compatible with Joomla. If you see any parts marked red, please contact your hosting provider to resolve the problem. If all items are green, you can click Next.
  6. You can read Joomla License and click Next.
  7. You should enter MySQL database connection parameters now. Please enter Host Name (usually "localhost"), username, password and database name and click Next. If you get error message, please check database parameters. If you don't know correct parameters, please contact your hosting provider.
  8. On FTP Configuration page, you can enter parameters of your FTP server. This is not necessary and can be entered later, if needed. So, just click Next.
  9. On Main Configuration screen you should enter Site Name, e-mail and administrator's username and password (twice). Click Install Sample Data button. (Otherwise, demo content won't be imported). Once you get "Sample data installed successfully" message, you may click Next.
  10. As the Finish screen says, please remove "installation" folder from your server (use FTP software).
  11. Congratulations, you are done! Click Site button to see your site's frontend, or Admin to see site's backend (login required with username and password that you selected during installation).

Regular template installation within Joomla

  2. In your Joomla admin panel, go Extensions > Extension Manager. See Image 1.
  3. Click <Browse> button and locate file "hot_sportalXX.zip" on your computer. Click <Upload & Install> button. See Step Image 2.
  4. Once the file has been uploaded on your server, you would get a message as on this image. See Image 3.
  5. Go Extensions > Template Manager, select "hot_sportal - Default" from the list and click Default icon (star in the right column). See Image 4.
  6. Check site frontend. Now you should see your website with a new template.
  7. You need to type "nav" in Menu Tag ID of the top menu module (position User3). Menu Class Suffix should be empty. Menu style should be set to "list".

After the installation procedure, you won't get your website look as this Demo. Maybe you'd need to change positions of your modules according to this guide and change parameters in some of your menus.
